Trailer for American martial arts action movie Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li. Kristin Kreuk stars as the title character; and the cast also includes Chris Klein, Neal McDonough, Robin Shou, Moon Bloodgood, Josie Ho, Taboo and Michael Clarke Duncan. In cinemas in Malaysia on February 26.
Directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, the film follows the earlier life of Chun Li, a character from popular video game series Street Fighter. Most of the stories take place in Bangkok, and a bit in Hong Kong.
The trailer seems fine but there’s nothing much about Street Fighter. What’s the point of making a movie out of a popular video game when they are not using any of the elements? Could be much more interesting if it shows the origin of the iconic costume and features some famous fighting techniques etc.
Updates and thoughts – It’s a poor movie. The action is average, the cast does OK, and Kristin Kreuk looks cool. The plot is horrible though, it’s boring most of the time. And anyone who expected to see a Street Fighter adaptation would be disappointed because there’s hardly any game features in it.
